Take the Alarm Pledge 

Our next Sound the Alarms draw will take place on September 6th! Take the Pledge to get your name entered! 

Firefighters have started to visit homes in the City to raise awareness about the importance of working Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. We will not visit homes who have completed the Alarm Pledge.

When a fire starts, smoke and flames spread fast. Only a working smoke alarm will give you and your family the early warning to escape a fire safely. Smoke alarms must be installed on every level of your home and outside all sleeping areas. 

Carbon Monoxide alarms must be installed adjacent to sleeping areas in home with a fuel burning appliance and/or an attached garage. 

Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and take the pledge TODAY. Your name will be entered into our monthly draw to win a FREE Prize!



 Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest 2016

Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 fire that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871.  We have the opportunity to involve Peterborough students in helping us to promote Fire Prevention week and Fire Safety and Prevention all year round.
